While you may not think about it, your kitchen is a great place to add decorative elements that bring a sense of you and your lifestyle into your kitchen. For many homeowners, plant shelves on top of cabinets allow room for plants, artwork, and other decorative items. Built-in display shelves below your kitchen island can showcase your prized kitchenware, your favorite cookbooks, or display an heirloom set of china passed down through generations. Add a vase of flowers, and a fresh bowl of lemons for a shot of color.
Food isn’t the only reason to use your kitchen. Beverages can be equally important, especially if you’re looking for a quality way to start your day. Setting up a well-appointed coffee or tea station makes the ritual of enjoying a warm beverage easier and more pleasant. Stock your station with plenty of mugs you love and whatever equipment you need to whip up your beverage of choice.
Your kitchen is most likely the busiest area of your home, and the place people are most likely to congregate in. Modern kitchens embrace this by adding seating to the kitchen. Whether you choose countertop stools and seats at a breakfast bar, or you opt for a banquette or bench at a window side table, seating can make your kitchen have a whole new appeal. Busy families with children doing homework to parents entertaining friends while cooking make seating essential in your modern kitchen.
To accomplish this, you should replace the traditional kitchen faucet with an infrared sensor model. This type of—kitchen faucet will help to reduce the amount of water wasted by automatically shutting it off if nothing triggers the infrared sensors. For example, if you would turn on the faucet to wash your hands as-well as you turn away to quickly answer the phone, the faucet would shut off automatically to save water. A green kitchen design can also help to reduce water-heating costs. You can do this by installing a water heater that is energy efficient. You can also wrap an insulation blanket around the water heater you currently have.
